I did promise you a sneak peek of my new fabric line with Red Rooster fabric than is being introduced to shop owners in Houston in october. It will be in stores early next year and I will be making some great new patterns with it. Is'nt this just Yummy??? I just love playing with putting the different colorations together, it is really versatile. You can make a quilt using only the browns, greens, reds & golds for a very warm and rich looking quilt but then add the pop of the purple and it makes the other colors almost jewel tone. I just love it. I am starting a quilt today so perhaps I will give you another sneak tomorrow of an actual quilt. Stay tuned.
I would love to get some comments from you readers, just so I know you actually are somewhere out there in cyberspace. Maybe we will have a little drawing for a packet of some Mementos fabric for those who actually write me back!
I am so excited about the retreat that I am hosting with my friend and fellow designer Tracy Trevethan. We have 30 quilters coming from Iceland to the retreat and it is going to be phenomenal. It has always been a dream of mine to get Icelandic and American quilters together in a room over a weekend and have some serious fun. If you haven't heard about this retreat, check out my website www.gequiltdesigns.com/quiltretreat We still have spots available so act fast girls. I will be writing more about the retreat tomorrow and showing you the quilts we have designed specifically for it.
Have a great day.
